tHUMDAY, ATJUUB I 1 •, t«W BHIHBJLLLB, (AHlt.T OOTTRTOl Senate Routine Threatens To Delay Sen. McCarthy's Story of Loyalty Suspects PAGE SEYEW WASHINGTON. Aug. a (,P) _, Routine .Senate business today threatened to delay Senator McCarthy's plans to make public the names of 29 State Department em- ployes whose loyalty, he says, has been questioned. t "I don't plan to delay the calendar call by making my speech in bits," the Wisconsin Republican told a reporter. "But I hope to get the floor, possibly late in the day." The Senate was scheduled to call Its calendar of bills starting at 11 «j3i.. EST. under a system whereby routine measures are passed as read unless some Senator objects. Any senator can speak for five minutes after each bill is brought up. In the past some senators have made lengthy speeches In five-minute spurts, "I never 4° that unless they try to shut mt off." McCarthy said. Chairman Gillotte (D-Ia) of the subcommittee that policed last year's election campaign, said, meanwhile, that action on a request for an investigation of McCarthy himself, probably will be delayed "at least six weeks." Benton Asks Pruhe Senator Benton (D-Conn> has asked for an investigation of McCarthy's part in the Maryland Senate election last fall of Senator John Marshall Butler (R-Md). Benton also suggested that McCarthy resign his senate seat. McCarthy scoffed at the proposal and referred to his critic as a "mental midget." Betilon's request w»s turned over > the -Gillette subcommittee yej- terday by chairman Kayden CD- Ariz) of the Senate Rules Commit- .ec. At the same time that group sent on to the Senate by a B to 3 vote a highly critical report on the Butler campaign which resulted in defeat of former Senator Millard Tydings, Democrat. w McCarthy and Senators Wherry <R-Neb) and Jenncr (R-Ind). opposed this move. McCarthy, who took a lashing hi the majority find- Ing, was given ten days to file a minority report. He said he hopes Wherry and Jenner loin in this dissent. Acllon (o Be Delayed Action on Benton's niove for probe of McCarthy's activities In the Maryland election campaign will be delayed because the subcommittee on privileges and elections has other jobs pending, Gillette said. These include bearings on ihe Ohio senatorial election, which Gillette said he hoped to get started "next weekend." McCarthy's plan to name Stale Department employes who, he savs. are involved in loyalty actions "is part of his long fued with the department which he contends Is shot through with Communists and Communist-sympathizers. He said lie decided to name names because department officials refused to make public those whose loyalty, he contends, has been questioned.

Aug. ». lip} — Children are flocking to a certain neighborhood candy store here, but not to buy sweets! They are filling a box with nickels and dimes to help buy a new arm for a playmate. The donations are for 12-year- old Janet Cooper, whose right arm was amputated last Saturday. Janet fell from a swing a few- days before and the arm became infected. Three of her friends—Bonnie Balach, Danie Brunero and Dolores Kascak—decided the nicest gift they could offer would be an artificial arm. They talked it over with their parents, who started the fund. The contribution box was set out in the store, ,run by Bonnie's father. Not only the children, but the milkman, the breadman, the cop en the corner and housewives'out shopping, have left donations. Nor is that all. The three youngsters who started It all are melting the rounds in that neighborhood, collecting further funds. They hope to have their 51,000 by the end of the week..Until then what they have been doing will be kept secret from Janet.
